Product Information

Natural tracing paper

Our tracing papers are naturally transparent and are made from 100 % pure cellulose fibre without the use of transparentising chemicals. Unlike resin-impregnated translucent paper, our product is 100 % recyclable and biodegradable. Our tracing papers are manufactured from Elemental Chlorine Free and Total Chlorine Free woodpulp from well managed and renewable forest sources that have been certified as FSC or FSC controlled wood.


Technical know-how

Research & development is an area that has always been key to the manufacture of our innovative papers. Over the years we have developed many new opportunities by selective adjustments to our products to meet changing technology and market demands.


Our R & D teams, working locally within the Chartham and Quzhou mills, have created solutions to customer opportunities or problems. Our development from original technical and manual drawing paper to what is now a comprehensive range of products has been achieved through people with dedicated knowledge of the chemistry and process engineering required for continuous product improvement and innovation.


With many thousands of years' of accumulated knowledge and skills, there is no one better to talk to, so if you have a specific idea please contact us via our contact page.
